About Miguel

I'm a retired Tampa police officer. My career was dedicated to helping people in need. This career was rewarding in many ways. The good feeling inside from helping others in need is just one example. I now manage my long term rental properties, and this one vacation rental. I really does give me a similarly good feeling by being able to share my tropical paradise with nice families, and to help make their vacations just a little bit more enjoyable by having this amazing property to call home during their visit.

Miguel purchased this house in 2001

Why Miguel chose Tampa

It's truely a tropical paradise located in the heart of historic Tampa. It's 3/4 acre private riverfront property provides a peaceful, tranquil environment in which to relax after a long day of active tourism.

What makes this house unique

Being in the heart of the city, but secluded in a quiet nieghborhood along the beautiful Hillsborough river. This is absolutely the perfect location!! You can go just minutes in any direction and find anything you would need......museums, golf, shopping, dining, pub's, etc

Absolutely loved it. The best in Tampa

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? Everything as advertised was in place and working great. This residence provides the best of both indoor and outdoor living. You never get bored here. Swimming, hot tub, pool table, pinball, retro electronic games, juke box, unlimited cable vision to the big screen TV's, etc. Quiet, peaceful and breathtaking scenery. Our host, Michael was simply amazing. He went out of his way to ensure we were 100% satisfied. We WILL BE COMING BACK HERE AGAIN. You will not go wrong choosing this property!

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here! The house was beautiful! The pictures don't do it justice. Miguel was right there to meet us, he walked us around the home and grounds and was available for all our needs. We will definitely rent here again!

Had a blast 2 years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place...beautiful, quiet setting right on the river with a fantastic pool area. Close to everything in Tampa, yet secluded and tranquil. Miguel is the best host ever - helped us any time we needed anything. Pool table and game room is tons of fun when you want to just hang out around the house. We have been 2 years in a row and plan on going every year from now on.

Far exceeded our expectations

  • 4 of 5

Just wanted to write about this wonderful rental property. The pictures are good but it's even more beautiful in person. Our family had a wonderful week. We loved the privacy. We loved being so close to Tampa w/o feeling like we were in the city. I loved being able to cook most of our meals there. The grill and the outdoor spaces made eating outdoors easy and relaxing. We had ample sleeping and living space. Washer and dryer worked perfectly!

The pool table and games were fun to play after a day of sightseeing, hanging out poolside and watching the boats on the river.

When we arrived, everything was clean and in good working order. I really appreciated that Miguel was willing to work with our schedule. I found other property owners to be quite rigid with their schedules but Miguel was very accommodating.

Miguel made himself available if we had any questions and we knew if we needed anything he was only a phone call away.

I would highly recommend this property.I would only hesitate to do so because if more people discovered it, the schedule may fill up before we could get back again! It has a lot to offer and Miguel made the process very easy.

We loved the beaches, Hillsborough River State Park, Ybor city, Rick's by the River and some shopping.
